A man by the name of Jako rolled up his jeans and shirt to unclog a drain to prevent flooding and was caught on camera, now people are looking for him to thank him.
Peter Morey was driving through Centurion on a particularly rainy day when he came to an underpass that regularly floods during heavy rains. He noticed a man calf-deep in the water getting soaked by all the cars driving by.
He stopped to check what was going on and he realised that this man was calf deep in rain water. He was digging deep into a drain trying to unclog it. Peter asked his name and he responded “Jako” and when prompted for his surname he just smiled and have a thumbs up.
Peter filmed the encounter and shared it on Facebook saying,
“To the Centurion hero ” Jako” that had the brains and balls to stop and unclog the drain under the Irene train bridge after the huge downpour, I thank and salute you mate. We need more everyday hero’s that don’t mind getting their hands dirty to make life easier for all… well-done Jako, you can take the day off tomorrow…”
The video has been well viewed and now Peter is looking for the hero that selflessly helped so many people. He hopes to put Jako in contact with many people looking to interview him. Do you know this man? If so, let us know and we will pass the information along to Peter.
